11. A student has a glass of water as shown. She takes an ice cube from the freezer. She puts the ice cube into the water. Which explains the change that happens? 1.The ice cube melts because cold flows out of the ice cube to the water. 2.The ice cube does not melt because cold flows into the ice cube from the water. 3.The ice cube melts because thermal energy transfers to the ice cube from the water. 4.The ice cube does not melt because thermal energy transfers from the ice cube to the water.
